Description: This neuropathology case study, provided by the University of Pittsburgh Department of Pathology, is an excellent learning tool for students and instructors in the health science fields. In this case, a 21-year-old man presents with a three-week history of thoracic myelopathy, decreased sensation, and a wobbly gait. Visitors are shown MRI images of the patient’s spine, along with microscopic images and a gross description of the condition. The official diagnosis found in the “Final Diagnosis” section is accompanied by a discussion of the contributing doctor’s findings and a list of references. This is an excellent resource for students in the health sciences to familiarize themselves with using patient history and laboratory results to diagnose patient’s conditions
